Minimalism Creates Space

Minimalism isn’t about frugality, but about creating space in our lives. It provides us with the tools to stop clutter from entering our lives and to get rid of useless stuff to make room for us.

The space around us isn’t just physical but includes the digital, mental, emotional and spiritual components that impact us in ways we don’t fully understand. Everything that we love: things like creativity, joy, laughter, needs space to exist.

  • A clean, decluttered closet and desktop helps us free our mind and think clearly.
  • Our mental space is cleared when we remove the excess stuff around us.
  • Apart from creating room in our minds, space also frees up our time and makes us easy to sit and listen to a friend, or to feed a dog on the street, as we are not burdened with the busyness and the looming deadlines.
  • A decluttered home also leads to less stress, and lifts a noticeable weight off our minds, letting us simplify our lives.

Our thoughts, especially the creative kind, are blocked by physical clutter.

Mental clutter, the stuff that is bouncing in our minds, needs to be placed somewhere else, like in a notebook. A decluttered mind helps us with connecting ideas in innovative ways.

Creating space provides us with room to enjoy and savour our breaks, our moments of joy, allowing us to live and breathe in the present, not worrying about the next deadline.

We don’t enjoy our cup of coffee anymore, due to the weight of life upon us all the time. We always need to rush and finish up our fun, getting back to the grind.
